According to Article 4 No. 1 DSGVO, personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as your name, your address, your e-mail address, your telephone number or even your IP address. No personal data is such information, with the help of which you are not identifiable, e.g. anonymized data and information.

Overriding interest as legal basis
The legal basis for the storage of the log data is Article 6 (1) f) DSGVO. Their 7-day storage is solely for the purpose of ensuring the proper operation of the server. This interest in the operational security of the server outweighs any interests in the immediate deletion of the above data. As a website visitor, you also have a similar interest in being able to access and use a website that is as secure as possible.
Consent as legal basis
Without your consent, no personal data about you will be collected or stored - apart from the automatically stored log data (see above). Only you decide whether or not you disclose personal data for the purpose of contacting you, evaluating the project or applying.
If you provide such data about yourself, you thereby give your consent to its storage and use in accordance with data protection law. The personal data you provide will be used exclusively to answer your inquiry or application or to send you the requested information or offers. If it is a project evaluation, the data will be stored for a maximum of two years.
You can revoke your consent to the processing of data at any time with effect for the future.

Legal bases for the processing of personal data in this context are Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DS-GVO and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.

Google Ads Conversions and Remarketing
Google Ads Conversions
On this website, the offer of Google Ads of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter: Google) is used to draw attention to our offers with the help of advertising media (so-called Google Ads) on external websites. As a provider, we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns. We pursue with it the interest to show you advertisement to our offers and services which could be of interest for you.
The advertising is delivered by Google via so-called "ad servers". For this purpose, we use ad server cookies with which certain parameters for measuring success, such as display of the ads or clicks by users, can be measured. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Ads will store a cookie on your computer. The unique cookie ID, the number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), the last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values for this cookie.
These cookies enable Google to recognize your internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of the website of an Ads customer and the cookie stored on his computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. A different cookie is assigned to each Ads customer. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across Ads customers' websites.
The ad server cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally.
We ourselves do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations, we can see which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising media; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.
Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of Ads Conversion, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on the ad from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in to a Google service, there is a possibility that the provider learns your IP address and stores it.
You can prevent participation in this tracking process in several ways:
a) by setting your browser software accordingly - the suppression of third-party cookies will result in you not receiving third-party ads;
b) by disabling cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain www.googleadservices.com (https://www.google.de/settings/ads), with this setting being deleted when you delete your cookies;
c) by disabling the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the self-regulatory campaign "About Ads" via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, this setting being deleted when you delete your cookies;
d) by permanently deactivating it in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browsers under the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. Please note that in this case you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.
Google Ads Remarketing
In addition to Google Ads Conversion, we use the Google Ads Remarketing application. Through this application, you can be shown advertisements about our services in your subsequent internet use after visiting our website. This is done by means of cookies stored in your browser, via which your usage behavior when visiting various websites is recorded and evaluated by Google. In this way, Google can determine your previous visit to our website. According to Google's own statements, the data collected in the context of Google Ads Remarketing is not merged with your personal data that may be stored by Google (e.g. because you have registered for a Google service such as GMail). According to Google, pseudonymization is used in remarketing.
Legal basis for processing
The legal basis for the processing of your data is the consent you have given via the cookie consent tool (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a) DSGVO).
Third country transfer
In the context of the use of these tools, your personal data will be transferred in compliance with the requirements of Art. 44 et seq. DSGVO, your personal data will also be transferred to a third country. Google is obliged to comply with the level of data protection in the European Union by agreeing to the EU standard data protection clauses (where necessary in conjunction with additional guarantees) of the European Commission. The standard data protection clauses are freely available on the Internet on the website of the European Commission.
Despite these contractual and technical measures, it may happen that the level of data protection in the third country does not correspond to that of the European Union. The legal basis for the international data transfer that then takes place is your consent pursuant to Art. 49 Para. 1 Sentence 1 lit. a) DSGVO, which you give via the consent in the cookie banner (or other forms, registrations, etc.). There is above all the risk, especially in the case of a data transfer to the USA, that your personal data could possibly be processed by authorities, for control and for monitoring purposes, even without sufficient legal remedies, without us as data exporter or you as data subject being aware of this.
Youtube video integration
